With its inaugural race in August 2006, the Orange Regional Medical Center Run 4 Downtown will celebrate its 7th anniversary on August 18, 2012. This year the ORMC R4DT welcomes Studio Ayo and its charismatic leader, Damola, as he leads people through a Zumba workout in the middle of North Street as soon as the runners begin their event. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Founded by and chaired by Dave and Anna Madden, the ORMC R4DT is a 4 mile run/walk beginning and finishing in Historic Downtown Middletown, and is held on the third Saturday of August each year. Proceeds from the event support community revitalization projects. In the summer months you can see bright blue banners hung throughout Downtown Middletown; they were purchased with the proceeds from the 2008 event. The City park at 13-15 North Street recieved a major rehab courtesy of funds from the past two R4DT events. Existing concrete walkways and stairs were replaced with ornamental pavers and bluestone stairs, lighting will be improved and plantings will be enhanced. Visit the R4DT website for more details.
